I love bacon. I love cheese. I love that my Keto diet allows me to eat fat. If you are on a Keto diet, you know how difficult it can be to keep it interesting. That’s why I’m here. I am always looking for new ways to snack and adapt old favorites. After all, I was a chef in my younger years, so I might as well put those skills to use for something good, other than my past habit of slowly killing myself.
A good low carb high fat recipe is not always easy to find. In due time, we won’t have that problem as more and more people embrace this nutritional approach, but until then, we will have to innovate and create new snacks together.
Fat bombs are all the rage in the keto world. Now, let me add this caveat; if you are doing this to lose weight, be careful with these… They pack a real calorie punch, and a weight loss approach needs to be handled differently than a therapeutic approach.
However, if you are fully adapted and you are where you need to be, this makes a nice treat and your body will not let you over indulge. Either way, know your numbers and do what is right for you.
I searched high and low for a good, savory bacon fat bomb and could not find much of anything. I found some dip, a weird one with eggs, but nothing quite like what I was craving. Now, perhaps I was impatient and didn’t look hard enough, but, I ended up just making my own.
Here are the ingredients:
This should make about 10 balls. If you did indeed make 10, your calories will be roughly 335 kcal per bomb. 81% fat (30g) 17% protein (14g) and 2% carbohydrate (2g).
